Got up early again for a long day out on the ocean again. This time we head to NYC. Again calm water for our 45 mile run to the Hudson River and the state of New York.
What an experience to approach the harbor and view the skyline as we neared the city. Of course it is a busy port area and we have not seen this much water traffic in a long time. Freighters, tug boats, ferries of all sizes and colors, cruise ships, tankers and all different sizes of power and sail boats.Tonight we are anchored out next to the Statue of Liberty with 4 other boats in a well protected area. Knowing that the statue stands for all that we cherish as citizen of the United States it was a great experience. As it got dark the view of the statue with the torch lit and the background of Battery Park in the background made this sight exceptional.
